"Unusual Aperture"--Check it out!
May 29, 2016 • Leave a Comment
A week ago I created a new page on my regular Facebook site called Unusual Aperture. You can find it on Google, but the address is: m.facebook.com/unusualaperture/. On it I will be presenting images that are a bit different than my customary work, images that have an unusual mood, color, or angle. Some will be straight images that I captured and post with little enhancement, some will be converted to black and white, or more heavily manipulated.
When I told my daughter, who is a talented graphic designer, about my idea for the page, she said: "Feeling a bit schizophrenic dad?" The answer is no, of course. I just want to explore a different side of the photographic art. I think every artist, if I may call myself that, has a side that is just beneath the surface of their usual work that they find appealing. Without question, I love the color and sharpness of photography. It marks my best work, IMHO. Still, I appreciate different images, images that are mysterious, strange and a bit eerie. I see these when I take my more popular and commercial work, but I rarely post them. Now, with the page I will post on a regular basis, some in color, some in black and white.
If you get the chance and have the inclination, please stop by my page at: https://m.facebook.com/unusualaperture and let me know what you think.
I don't have a separate website yet, though I have the domain names. Whether this expands depends on the reaction I get to it and the press of other photographic business. In other words, stay tuned!
